CoreyWW Steven Universe Fanfiction Masterpost
Brief notes on my work in general, if you’ve never heard of me before. My handle is CoreyWW. My Steven Universe fanfics tend to be slice-of-life in general, sometimes funny, sometimes very very sad. Almost everything I’ve written is very dialogue heavy and involves a lot of focus on emotional conflict rather than action or anything like that. Though I’ve written a bit of everything, it seems my audience seems to enjoy my comedies the best (so that’s why they’re at the top, haha), but even if comedies are you’re thing, I think you’ll find something you might like in here.
So without further ado, here is a masterpost of everything I’ve written so far, in helpful categories.
(* marked are my personal favorites, in my personal opinions)
I Want to Understand * - After stopping the Cluster, Peridot must face her next challenge: adjusting to life on her new planet and learning about humans that populate it. Knowing just how out of depth Peridot is, Steven enlists Connie’s help in getting Peridot used to humans and acclimated to Beach City.
Considering Peridot has no social skills whatsoever, this goes about as well as you’d expect …
Funny episodic “Peridot in Beach City” adventures about how Peridot changes over time. Diverges from canon after The Answer (Though by coincidence, the premise of story basically makes this “Log Date 7 15 2: The Series”)
The Connie Maheswaran Fanclub (Or: How Connie Became the Most Popular Topic in School After She Pulled a Sword Out of Lion in Front of Literally Everyone) * - Connie finds out that pulling swords out of magical animals in a school hallway with everyone watching can cause people to treat you differently …
A Spinoff/Sequel to the Lion chapter of Xenopology by CompletelyDifferent. A series about Connie dealing with her newfound fame and how it affects her other school friends, Jeff and Peedee, as well as everyone else around her.
Lars Vs. The Smoke Detector - Lars loses a battle of wits against a smoke detector that starts beeping at three in the morning.
The Title of This Story is “Friend Fiction.” It’s Fiction About My Friends - (Editor’s Note: This was submitted under a different account called TheGreatAndLovablePeridot where I basically pretend to be Peridot even in the comments on AO3 for the sake of immersion.)
My name is Peridot and I have decided to write fandom fiction! I discovered you can write “real person fics” so I decided to write stories about individuals I know from my time trapped on this wonderful and horrifying planet! I hope you derive enjoyment from these stories as I feel they are the pinnacle of art and culture in the universe!
“Concert” - A Pearl ficlet taking place after “Last One Out of Beach City.”
Pearl sneaks home after being out all night.
Dramas and Tragedies
Bad Girl Brushstrokes * - Amethyst tells Greg that Vidalia has been acting strange lately and she’s worried. Even though he doesn’t know her that well, Greg tries to talk to Vidalia … and quickly finds out there’s a lot more to this “bad girl” than meets the eye …
Takes place several weeks after the flashback in “We Need to Talk.” In-continuity with “I Want to Understand.”
Why Don’t You Hate Me? *- “Greg woke up in the middle of the night to see Pearl sitting next to him, already glaring when he opened his eyes.
She was holding a sword.”
A pre-canon story about a confrontation between Greg and Pearl that had been a long time coming and ultimately changed how they saw each other.
In the canon-divergent continuity of “I Want to Understand”. Is contradicted in canon by Mr. Greg.
The Grieving Process * - One week ago, Steven was born … and Rose died.
Greg tries his best to care for the newborn Steven despite his grief but, honestly, he feels his pain is nothing compared to how the Gems are feeling in Rose’s absence. Garnet has defused, Pearl has disappeared, and Amethyst … well, nobody seems to even want to SAY what Amethyst is doing …
Can they learn to carry on without Rose … or will they let their loss consume them? A sequel to Bad Girl Brushstrokes and Why Don’t You Hate Me? In the canon-divergent continuity of “I Want to Understand”. Is contradicted in canon by Mr. Greg.
Work Emails - In the course of Yellow Pearl’s work, she has to send a lot of messages via commlink. It’s a necessary part of her job, even if some days are harder than others. It’s routine.
But one day Yellow Pearl got a message from another Pearl that threw her routine out the window …
Takes place in the same divergent alternate continuity as “I Want to Understand”
Wolfsbane - Based on the Occult AU comic by Crystalwitches.
On the night of the full moon, Amethyst insists on taking certain … precautions. Peridot knows its the smart thing to do, but that doesn’t mean she has to like it.
Have You Seen the News? * - When Steven finds out about some recent news stories that have greatly upset Jeff and Peedee, Steven tries to figure out what he can do to fix things … only to realize what little control he has over the world. After he feels his most helpless, he gets some advice that gives him the strength to go on and figure out what he can do to help …
A very non-canon chapter of The Connie Maheswaran Fanclub.
Baby Names - Steven and Connie are married with a baby girl on the way. Steven struggles to come up with a name, not helped by the fact the Gems are pushing to call the baby “Rose” which Steven feels … complicated … about. In the midst of that, he ends up getting advice from the last Gem he ever would have expected.
Breaking Point - A “What If?” story based on the Bismuth episode. What if the Gems found out Bismuth attacked Rose ahead of time so the forge fight with Steven never happened … and most importantly, how angry would Pearl be about the whole thing?
Bismuth finds out exactly how angry during an argument after she’s placed in a holding cell …
Phone Call at Two in the Morning - Connie gets a call from Steven at two in the morning …
A very short ficlet taking place after “Bismuth”.
I Don’t Blame You - Rose Quartz hides Bismuth’s bubble away, heavy with regret. It wasn’t Bismuth’s fault what had happened …It was hers.
On Your Feet, Soldier - During the Rebellion, a Ruby with a Gem instead of a left eye meets a Jasper. It becomes the defining moment of her life.
I’m Sorry, I Just Can’t - Priyanka hasn’t been the same since Doug and Connie’s tragic accident. Pearl strikes up an unlikely friendship with her that seems to help …
Until one day when Priyanka doesn’t show up for tea, forcing Pearl to go check on her …
Based on the fanfic Incredible by FourFaces.
Closing Alone * - “Lars, can you do me a favor and close up by yourself tonight?” Sadie said about thirty minutes before closing time at the Big Donut. “I want to go home and change before my date tonight.”
“Yeah, sure, whatever,” Lars leaned on the front counter by the register, half-listening as he idly browsed online with his phone. A second later, he registered what Sadie had said and his eyes went wide. “Wait, what?”
[A conversation between Lars and Sadie as Sadie is leaving to go on a date with someone who isn’t Lars. To say this conversation goes poorly is an understatement.]
The Maheswarans: The Early Days - “Doug was at a party during his senior year when he met her.”
Stories from when Doug and Priyanka were dating.
How to Talk to Pearls at Parties - Inspired by CompletelyDifferent’s Little Rebellions fanfic (with permission).
A light grey pearl is at a boring party for elites when she’s approached by a purple pearl who seems oddly familiar. The pearl knows its dangerous to talk in public … but it wasn’t as if anyone was paying attention to them …
The Bard’s Song * - Connie is having a boring day doing chores on the outskirts of her village when she meets a young bard with curly dark hair …
A Connverse-filled prequel of Swordtheguy’s “Adventuring Band of the Crystal Gems” fantasy AU.
Renegade - “There had been twenty of them when they first saw the Pearl. She looked harmless at first. It should have been easy.
Now there was only one.”
“You Know What’d Be Cool? A Story About This …” (Or: Steven Universe Prompt Fills and Requests) - A collection of Steven Universe one-shots written as requests or prompt fills.
If you would like to put in a request or prompt for future installments, either post it as a comment on this fic or send an ask on my tumblr. The only restrictions are no NSFW requests and no requests shipping minors with adult characters; anything else is fair game.
Maternal Moments - A series of one-shots involving the Gems (and others) in moments of being maternal. In other words, lots of family feels and fluff.
If I Don’t Think About the Problem, It Doesn’t Exist (with airamcg) - Pearl opened up text messages and sent one to her. She started typing:
I’m feeling really overwhelmed. I’m not sure what to do. I’m trying to get myself together.
Pearl hesitated before she sent a second one.
I miss you.
[A doubleshot based on Yellow Pearl’s character from the fic “Something about Roommates and Girlfriends” by TheLillie. Possibly canon.]
Just A Normal Coffee Shop (with airamcg, CompletelyDifferent, and FourFaces) - It’s just a normal Monday at the coffee shop. Lapis is bored. Peridot is having endless struggles with the wi-fi. And Steven is super nervous for his date with Connie. He feels like he’s forgotten something— something very important…
Nah, it’s probably just nerves, after all.
Weekend at Laramie’s (with BarracudaHeart) - Ronaldo learned two things in the wake of the disaster that was his mother’s funeral: 1. Don’t let relatives walk all over you. And 2. Never EVER go drinking with your childhood friend the night before.
Lars’s Journal (with BarracudaHeart) - “I kinda thought writing a journal would help me feel better, like … getting all this bad crap out of me. But reading it now, it just seems like every day gets worse and worse.”
But sometimes, secrets are kept, feelings are hurt, and even those who seem inseparable can end up fighting.
